    A new cup holder would be nice!! 🙂 In case you’re curious, here’s the clip starting right where my piece starts as they open the garage. Maybe the one-two punch at the end will let me buy seat covers for my Ferrari? 🙂

    Chuck, that’s basically what I have. Most of my tracks are in 5-6 non-exclusive libraries and on a half dozen RF sites. Once I start making some income from these I may quit the RF scene (doesn’t pay enough IMHO). For some reason, I’ve never liked exclusive deals but decided to test it out and put 18 tracks exclusively with a library in the Netherlands who seem to be busy promoting their composers. We’ll see how my investments do!

    Please let us know!!! I’ve asked this question over and over with various placements I’ve had. Apparently there is no rhyme of reason to how they calculate this sort of stuff. Tunesat shows I’m getting a track played each Monday on a religious TV show. Sometimes it shows one minute, but sometimes they play 3 minutes of it? Will I soon be wealthy?? lol 🙂

    Hmm, ok. I’m sole proprietor. I’ve been registering my more recent pieces as 200% writer and forgetting the publisher thing. I mostly do non-exclusive and some RF but do have about 18 tracks exclusively with one library. Some of the tracks that are with NE libraries have been retitled and then they become the publisher. Thanks for the input!

    Same here. I joined the free account about a month and ago and have had detections each week on a piece used in a religious TV show. My question is why is fee so steep to post more than 50 tracks!?

    Perhaps… but I think I’ll get my $7 back pretty easily…

    Oh, the only negative for this deal was a somewhat low 33% commission… but it’s non-exclusive so I can keep pitching to others.

    Well, on a whim, I submitted to a project of a studio/library looking for drameday/Pixar/Disney composers. Although I really don’t compose in that genre I guess they liked what they heard from my tracks and that day was asked me to join. Not only am I now composing dramedy/Disney pieces… but they also took my entire catalog of 255 songs and to use for clients! This cost me a whopping $7. Pretty good return if you ask me!
